People in Greenville can start knocking about 20 percent off what they pay for their prescriptions.
The city of Greenville says free prescription drug discount cards are now available to its residents. The discount cards offer city residents an average savings of 20 percent off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.
The discount cards have no restrictions based on the residents age, income level, or existing health coverage. The National League of Cities card can be used at about 25 pharmacies around the city, and tens of thousands around the country.
"In the current economic climate, where many people are watching what they spend, Greenville is happy to partner with the National League of Cities to make this prescription discount card available for our residents," said Human Resources Director Gerry Case. "Whether or not an individual has prescription coverage, this program can make it easier for our residents to afford the drugs they need to deal with a short-term illness or stay healthy by managing a chronic condition."
Greenville residents can pick up the cards at city hall or any of the city libraries.
